What are some things that I can read or watch on the Internet to help me fall asleep?

Asked by ParsecParkway (13points) January 22nd, 2010

I have classes later today, so this would be the wrong night to stay up. Therefore, what solutions can you link here that will help me fall asleep, whether by reading, watching, or in any way that will work?

(They have to be browser-based. Thanks.)

Turning off the Internet will help you fall asleep.

Trying to fall asleep while staring into the bright light of a computer monitor will not come easily or naturally. I would instead recommend finding sound applications/web apps and turn the monitor off. Or play a quiet movie that you enjoy and turn off/down the screen. While laying in bed try to visualize the movie in your head as this can help trigger REM.

For sounds try

When i cannot become sleepy, i go to the Mummys Gold Casino. i pick out a slot machine game to play and watching the wheels go round and round always makes me yawn and off to bed i go. i have been know to go to sleep at the wheel… my computer of course. you will have to sign up for Mummys Gold Casino. its absolutely free and this casino has some of the best games on the internet, if not the best. they constantly update their site with new casino games. i have been a member for about 6 years and love it. in case you do want to gamble with real money, the site is very safe.

The computer would let you stay up all the more. Turning it off would help you fall asleep. Warm milk, hot bath and a low light beside your comfortable bed would help.

Nuh night :)

MIT has begun posting a lot of their advanced physics lectures online for those that would do self-study; unless you find advanced physics particularly interesting, you might try sleeping to that.
